RV Insurance Specialty Coverage: Diminishing Deductibles aka Disappearing Deductibles
Save big on RV Insurance with Diminishing Deductibles. The concept of your deductible decreasing each year you are claim free is not new to the RV Insurance specialty product lines but it is definitely one of the most used. This coverage varies slightly depending on which carrier you are insured with but in general here is how it works.
Let's say you select a deductible limit of $1,000 to start. Every year you don't have a claim your comprehensive and collision deductible will decrease by 25% as demonstrated in the chart below. Notice with this rate of decline at your 5th year your deductible would be $0.
||% of Decrease
|| $ 1,000
Keep in mind the program you select will have an impact on the type of diminishing schedule available to select. For instance, most programs use a 25% per year diminishing rate. There are some though that diminish $50 every 6 months or $100 per year.
Would you pay $400 to save $1,000
RV Diminishing Deductible coverage often costs less than $100 per year. It's easy to see in the event of a claim how the savings add up. Factor in the separation available from some carriers allowing Comprehensive claims to work independent of Collision claims and you double your savings in the event of a loss.
Top 5 things to ask your agent:
Do you offer diminishing deductibles?
What are the rates of decrease available?
Do glass claims count against my comprehensive diminishing rate?
Do my Comprehensive and Collision deductibles work independently of each other?
If I am towing my car, will I pay one or two deductibles if they are both damaged?
